FOOTBALL - Rugby Town travel to Desborough this weekend

RUGBY TOWN turn their attention to Desborough Town this weekend with manager Carl Adams still serving a stadium ban.

Valley’s clash with league leaders Harborough Town was postponed on Saturday due to the effects of Storm Eunice.

The storm left Butlin Road with a waterlogged pitch and the fixture was called off following a pitch inspection at midday.

And the fixture has now be rearranged for Tuesday, March 8 as Rugby prepare to face Desborough tomorrow afternoon.

Stand-in boss Justin Marsden will be confident of taking the three points against a Desborough side who are down in 17th place in the United Counties League Premier Division South table.

By comparison, Rugby have won 11 of their last 12 league matches and sit fourth, with their only blemish in that run a defeat to title challengers Hinckley LRFC.

Valley ran out 4-2 winners in the reverse fixture back in November, with David Kolodynski scoring two late goals after Luke English and James Hancocks had struck in the first half.

And the extra week’s break means Dylan Parker and English have had additional time to recover from their respective injuries whilst cup-tied trio Adam Shaw, Madundo Semahimbo and Alex Lock are also back available having missed the 2-0 FA Vase defeat at North Shields.

Valley’s clash with Desborough takes place Saturday, February 26 with kick-off at 3pm at Waterworks Field.
